|No Triple Crown Winner Again
|BALTIMORE (AP) -- Lookin at Lucky won the Preakness, ending Super Saver's bid to become the first Triple Crown winner in 32 years.
Lookin At Lucky moved into contention in the final turn and sprinted to the finish ahead of First Dude. His victory Saturday means the sport will have to wait at least another year for its first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978.
Lookin At Lucky was favored in the Kentucky Derby, but finished sixth on a sloppy track.
Jackson Bend was third and Yawanna Twist was fourth.
Super Saver won the Kentucky Derby by 2 lengths with Calvin Borel in the saddle and riding the rail. This time, Borel was back aboard the 3-year-old bay colt, but didn't get to the rail -- his signature trip.
